Trivest Partners has promoted Forest Wester, Russ Wilson and David Gershman to partner, a move that follows the close of the Miami-based private equity firm’s fifth fund this week on $415m.

All three individuals will join managing partner Troy Templeton and partners Jamie Elias and Chip Vandenberg in leadership roles in Fund V, the firm said.

He plays an active role with portfolio investments and serves on the board of directors of Ryko Solutions, Take 5 Oil Change, Ellery Homestyles and Twin-Star International.

Gershman, who has been promoted to partner and general counsel, joined Trivest in 2002 and leads the legal function for the firm including deal structuring and transactional services.

He has served or currently serves as director of several Trivest portfolio companies such as ATX Networks, Hazmasters and Herbal Magic.

“Each of these talented individuals has contributed significantly to Trivest’s success, and we are very proud to recognise their accomplishments,” said Templeton.

“Their hard work and considerable talent will continue to benefit our investors and portfolio companies in the years to come.”
